Many years ago was really into my running and done dozens of halves PB 1:35 and 12 marathons PB 3:42
That was about 5 years ago and now really am trying to get back into it and eventually get fit for a crack at another marathon (at least 2 years away when I will be 56)
Am running 3 miles at present at around 10:30 pace. Do you think its better to keep at 3 miles and try to get my time down to around 8:30 per mile and then increase distance or just concentrate on distance and time on my feet at the moment
Never been any good at interval traing or speed training which is why I never quite reached the holly grail of 3:30. IF I can get in shape to do another marathon would really want to get under 4 hours
I'd shoot for time on feet, which will give your muscles, tendons and bones the best opportunity to be ready for the stresses which will come with faster running. I'd also read some running books and try to have a more structured approach to training if you are serius about your running goals.
Yes thats the way I will go - at present doing 3 is about my limit without causing possible injury - got to face it 5 years out is a long time !!
